MISS GRAND PHILIPPINES 2020 SAMANTHA MAE BERNARDO'S NATIONAL COSTUME
The Costume was inspired by our National Bird - The Philippine Eagle also known as the Monkey-Eating Eagle or Great Philippine Eagle.
It is considered the largest of the extant eagles in terms of length and wing surface, the rarest and most powerful birds in the world.
This costume also intend to create awareness because the Philippine Eagle is critically endangered, mainly due to massive loss of habitat resulting from deforestation in most of its range.
Gold as the main color of the costume to represent the magnificent journey of our Queen.
And to pay homage to the MGI Golden Crown.
Just like gold it is extravagant, wealthy, rich and undestructible, like Samantha - A queen who never gave up on her dreams.
